Brooke & Refuge House (Junior Girls & Boys; 10-13)

"This is my first year boarding and it's really nice. You always do nice things. Sometimes you go swimming or you can rent a movie. In the weekend on a Saturday you can always go on a trip, sometimes to theme parks like Chessington, or you go to the cinema to see the latest films, or you can go ice skating. And on a Sunday you can do what you want, go into town or whatever you want to do! It's just a lot of fun to do. The first few days are always a bit scary but you get used to it and now I'm really enjoying it!" Year 7 Girl 

"I like the boarding house because we have a really good House Captain and we can do a lot of stuff like playing on the computer or going into town. Our Housemaster is really nice and I think everybody likes him because he provides so much fun! So, I like my boarding house and I think everyone will because it's so good!" Year 8 Boy

House Master: Mr Aaron Appleton
